Eureka by Rick Doble


(Text, design & research by Rick Doble. Photos and images from except as noted.)

The eternal mystery of the world is its comprehensibility …
The fact that it is comprehensible is a miracle.
Albert Einstein

Moon and apple -- that Newton would compare

 Some live 
 for the apple moment: 

 When Isaac Newton 
 saw in a flash 
 that apple and moon 
 were one 
 and the same 

Pythagoras hearing the musical scale from blacksmith's hammers

 Pythagoras hearing 
 the harmony 
 blacksmith's hammers 

Archimedes taking a bath - the Eureka moment

 taking a bath 

An abstract painting by Kandinsky

 seeing the world 
 from a painting upside down 

 chasing a beam of light 

Picture of Isaac Newton seeling an apple drop from a tree

 The Universe 
 split open 
 for a second 
 to let 
 one small creature
